This is one of the many HDR that I took which I think turned out to be just interesting enough…

Selective Focus, originally uploaded by YiowMade.

I’ve blurred the image and used selective focus to emulate the look that I would LOVE to get out of the camera!

It was a cold night

Canon: Story Behind the Still chapter 2 contest

leave a comment »

In case you were not aware that Canon and Vimeo has partnered up and running a contest, head over Story Behind the Still group on Vimeo for more details.

The contest for the chapter 2 ends on Feb 11, 2010, here are my list of picks of potential winners:

  • This video for me show that there are people with mad skills out there, especially the part with selective colors, in my opinion it was very effective, it was well executed, and there was a twist that I didn’t see coming
  • Like every contest, people are always so driven to come up with something creative, or what guys would call “cool” or “awesome” video that alot of times we forget why we get into the creative field. Relax a little, have a little FUN!

Canon Rebel T2i / 550D

with 2 comments

For those of you don’t know, Canon had just announced a new consumer camera, T2i, the next generation of T1i camera. I was a little bit disappointed when I first heard this, since I’ve just purchased my Canon 7D about 2 months ago, and judging from the its specs: http://bit.ly/aAhS0i

There are few points that stood out to me

  • 18 MP APS-C CMOS sensor (Same as 7D)
  • DIGIC 4 (not dual DIGIC 4 chipset like 7D, meaning slower fps)
  • ISO 100-6400, H:12800 (according to Canon, about the same performance as 7D)
  • 3.7fps shooting
  • Full HD movies (all the modes that 7D has, yes, it does include the holy 24fps)
  • 7.7cm (3.0”) 3:2 Clear View LCD with 1,040k dots (slightly higher resolution than 7D, which had around 920k dots if I remember correctly…)

Chris George from www.photoradar.com has a hands on preview for the T2i / 550D camera

Followed by sample footage and stills from the T2i

But then after I had a little time to take it in, I think this is GREAT news! Because that means now it’s possible for me to have a B-Roll camera that has roughly the same ISO performance (according to Canon), only for $800! If it does perform as well as they say it is, boy, they might be hard to keep these bad boys in stock!
